3 Ways to Know How Clean Your Home’s Water Is

3 Ways to Know How Clean Your Home’s Water Is

Water Filter

Keep your family healthy with an affordable water filtration system. Start by figuring out whether the investment is necessary. Here are three simple ways to check your home's water quality:

1. Conduct a sniff test.

Unfortunately, smelly water is a way of life for many Americans. Additives meant to control water safety can easily cause odors.

The good news is that bad odors aren’t necessarily a sign your water isn’t safe. It’s just not very pleasant to drink, bathe or wash clothes in.

Whether your water poses a risk to your health, smelly water is a good reason to purchase a whole-home filtration system.

2. Send a water sample to an independent lab.

Your local water department, conservation department or County Extension office can help with this. They can give you a list of laboratories capable of testing your water sample for contamination. Don't worry about the lab and county officials being in cahoots, either. A lot can happen between the point where the local water supply enters the main into your home and when it leaves your water tap.

You will receive a report listing the contaminants found in your water. These can include mineral or biological particles. You’ll see whether or not the rates of contamination are within safe levels.

3. Request water testing from a plumbing company.

At Dependable Service Plumbing, we make customer satisfaction our top priority. Why? Simple. We want your long-term business. We're not going to gouge you on an unnecessary sale and forgo having a regular customer.

After testing your water for chlorine and bromides, we’ll be able to tell you what is in your home’s water and the easiest, most affordable way to solve any problems. After all, chlorine is the main cause for plumbing fixture breakdowns!

“We had an outstanding experience with Dependable Service Plumbing & Air in our remodeling of our master bathroom. In addition to their exceptional work, they were very concientious in their clean-up to include the cleaning of our hardwood floors while on their hands and knees. They arrived when we were told to expect them. They made it a point to ask us if their work was completed the way we wanted. We greatly appreciated their professionalism.” –-Theresa G.
